Hip Hotel in Union Square

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 12, 2008

Our 4 days stay in San Francisco was split between two hotels, (1) Fairmont and (2) Hotel Adagio. Needless to say, Hotel Adagio's service topped off the Big Giant any day. Unlike Fairmont, the clientele at Hotel Adagio are young and not businessmen like Fairmont's clients. Our stay at Fairmont wasn't welcoming, but the reason why we stayed at Fairmont was one friend works for Fairmont so he gets the discounted perks (but due to busy season we could not book 4 days but only 2). On the second day we decided to just cancel Adagio and save us the hassle of packing again just for 2 blocks but Fairmont couldn't promise us that they'd have a room for us. The day of the supposed move, we tried to call front desk again to make sure and she was not friendly at all so we had no choice but to call Adagio, cross our fingers that we still had our reservations.
Luckily, Adagio kept our reservation, they knew of our situation when we called the night before and they were kind enough to keep it for us anyway.
When we got there, we wished we stayed the first 2 days too because the hotel was just BEAUTIFUL.

Unique Quality: Botique hotels are always unique and Hotel Adagio is definitely one amazing hotel. The bed was very comfortable, complimentary umbrella (which you can also decide to purchase), their complimentary toiletries were really nice (don't hestitate to take their lotion, it smells so good), unique designs of room (feels pretty Bohemian), very 'homey', complimentary coffee in the room is gourmet it is so good, complimentary internet, actual window panels so you can open your window for some air, the bellboy and staff were very nice and knowledgable that when they see us they ask what we have done in SF so far, and can even suggest you to places, walking distance to Union Square...
I just can't think of anything negative about this hotel.
And oh don't forget to have a couple of drinks at the restaurant in the hotel called Cortez.
The clientele also tends to be younger and less 'business people' or 'family'.

Directions: Walking distance from Union Square, about 3 blocks

Wonderful accomodation just off Union Square. Friendly staff and spacious rooms. They organised my tour of the Napa Wine Valley and offer many, many more.
However, breakfast can be expensive and is served in the adjoining Cortez Bar. For those on a budget, just cross over the road and try the cafe, food is just as good but less than half the price. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Unique Quality: Aveda bathroom products are complimentary and the plasma screen television is great. Every room has a CD player and air conditioning, superb!

Directions: Just off Union Square, the main tourist hotel location.

I booked this hotel as part of a package deal through US Air vacations. Although when I called to confirm my reservation the desk agent told me I would be having the tiniest room with a double bed and a wall view, when we checked in, we were given a king size room with a nice little courtyard. It was quite spacious and well decorated in contemporary yet warm furnishings. The bathroom was small but nice with Aveda toiletries. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast at the downstairs Cortez restaurant was good. Hotel staff was exceedingly polite to me, despite some negative reviews I have read elsewhere. I find that in a lot of these places, you get what you give, and a smile goes a loooooong way. I would definitely stay here again. THe weather was very mild for our visit, but if you are planning a trip in warmer months, you may wish to consider another hotel as the Adagio does not have AC.

Directions: Two Blocks from Union Square

Hotel Adagio is located very close to Union Square and Market Street - so a really great location for shopping!

The staff is really kind and helpful.

There's a restaurant/ bar in the hotel and a nice bar right across the street.

The rooms and the hotel are all stylish. For a fee of 10$ you get a cable for internet access (the 10$ are refunded at the end of the stay)

You can join organised tours around the city and you're picked up at the hotel.

A Wallgreens and grocery store is nearby too.

Unique Quality: Great Location !!!!
